Profile: Strangelfreak


You can call me… Luis Pedro aka Strangelfreak

I identify as… Divine creative creation, as genderfluid or queerfabulous. Spiritually driven force that connects us all through humour and sexuality.

As far as third-person pronouns go, … They are sooooo not important to me. Call me he/she/it/ze/hir. I guess that it stopped being an insult when I was a child. It’s not my place to make you have the interpretation that most suits me. I guess that the part about duality really “does not compute” in my brain. I can talk about myself in female and male form, without even noticing. And usually other just get confused when they talk to me =)
Almost everytime I go to the supermarket, the lady there says “Goodbye, pretty,” then she turns red and corrects “Sorry, goodbye… er… handsome,” even though I’ve gone there for the 3 years I’ve been here in Barcelona. This happened to me in Portugal since I was little.

I’m attracted to… Freaks! Don’t know why, but if you’re far from the norm, misfit, genuine, spiritually connected or seen by others as crazy, I have a tendency to go and pick your brain… I call myself ambisexual ’cause it’s not about being a man or a woman for me, it’s about the ambivalence I feel. It’s not a preference. I can become attracted to girls who have masculine behaviour, or boys who are prancing dancing queens. For the most part… I love everyone who has a dark/ironic/acid sense of HUMOUR.

When people talk about me, I want them to… be able to insult me with intelligence, deal well with irony. But most of all rejoice in the diversity that allows us to have surprises, evolve and be able to share this unconditional love that is Life.

I want people to understand… defining something to allow you to understand others is a good thing, but defining something just to list the differences that separate us from each other is never a clever move.
Also that my sense of humour, even though it can be taken as an insult, is only intended to make you relax about your own personal fears… It’s a sign of confidence to be able to laugh about yourself.
